NSU Quick motorcycle, 1939
The "Quick" mini-motorcycle was first presented at the Berlin Exhibition in 1936. The Quick had a pedal crank, a 2-speed gearbox with handlebar gearshift, and was initially equipped with a backpedal brake. A new feature at the time: the NSU Quick was available as a ladies' and a gent's version. It was the cheapest motorcycle in the world and made NSU the largest motorcycle manufacturer in the world alongside DKW. Because of the great demand, it was offered again with a number of modifications after the war until 1952.
